Clariant launches five new bleaching earths to its Tonsil portfolio
The five new products specifically target 3-MCPD reduction in palm oil and seed oils.

MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant International Ltd has launched five new Tonsil bleaching earths as part of its stronger future-focused purification support for the edible oils, mineral oils and biofuels sectors.

Clariant's Tonsil bleaching earths are leading purification solutions based on sustainably-mined natural bentonite clays.

In Q4 2017, Clariant will add new Tonsil production capacity at its Le Treport site in France. This is the latest move in a double digit multi-million CHF investment to increase capacity and technical service globally in 2016/2017. Clariant also recently completed a multi-million CHF investment to extend capacity, reliability and service at its Moosburg, Germany site.

In Q2 2017, new capacity and a state-of-the-art laboratory came on stream in Turkey together with a new production site in Indonesia, expanding Clariant's global network to bring products closer to regions' markets.

Clariant said that it will also introduce five new products specifically targeting 3-MCPD reduction in palm oil and seed oils. The new Tonsil products, available ahead of forthcoming regulation, contribute to addressing market and consumer demand for healthier edible oils.

“We understand the needs of our customers for successfully producing high-quality edible oils or biofuels. We now have more of our sustainable product available, are in more locations than ever before, and are continuing to increase capacity and technical abilities, all to ensure we are closer to the customer and can better support evolving market and regional requirements,” said Anil Sonmez, head of business group purification EMEA at Clariant.
